The Orthoptic Department specialises in seeing patients with a variety of eye problems including strabismus (squint), amblyopia (lazy eye), double vision and eye movement problems. We are specialists in assessing vision in patients of all ages and work closely in clinics with the Paediatric Ophthalmologist to assess children with all types of eye conditions.
We run the vision screening service for all children starting school in Shropshire and also manage many community clinics including Oswestry, Whitchurch, Market Drayton, Ludlow, Bridgnorth, Newtown and Welshpool.
We have speciality clinics in Literacy difficulties, Stroke, Low Vision, Glaucoma, Thyroid and Paediatric contact lenses. We also are involved in teaching undergraduate Orthoptists and regularly accommodate students for Orthoptic placements from The University of Liverpool, Sheffield and Glasgow Caledonian University.
